Something really strange is happening to my photography. All the pictures I take are so far from what I want them to be... And I am so far from what I thought I was... I look at the pictures and don,t feel like sharing anything because they are too ordinary, the pictures which everyone could take. Everyone who owns a pretty good camera.
It had become a lot more difficult to judge my photographs when I got my Canon 550d. This camera allows to get really nice shots even when the composition is nothing very special. When I look at my pictures I always ask myself: "Does this one look nice because it,s really interesting, because I did a great job, or does it look that attractive because I took it with a good camera?" Believe me, it,s very difficult to answer this question. It,s difficult because I like to think that I have an eye for photography but at the same time I,m afraid of being conceited and becoming that Vera who would share every picture she takes being absolutely sure everything she does is perfect.
I get upset when I see that there is nothing worth sharing, photography is the way I express myself and if I cannot do that life doesn,t seem to be interesting and worthwhile any more. Anyway, the process of taking pictures is still exciting even if the result is poor, I just hope I will be more fortunate next time.
What is your relationship with photography? Tell me, I,m really curious about it.
Have a nice day,
